Whether I have worn the hat of architect, writer, editor, or visual artist, the work has always centered on communication through language and image, connection through story, and the exploration of ideas. What fascinates me, as both writer and artist, is how collectively we continue to build, reshape, or try to restore a narrative, in media res, about the world and ourselves in it. Most telling, I think, is what we make of the fragments of the tale, how we rearrange truth and fact to satisfy need. In my work, I explore the ways we imagine ourselves in this incomplete story with the unknowable end, and then how we might question it all. (Artist statements for some individual works can be found in my Notebook.)
